New Product Announcement
Unique Seat Pad Accelerometer Measures Human Body Response

article image
The Model 606M1 triaxial seat pad accelerometer measures both static and dynamic responses. This ergonomically shaped thin profile is well suited for characterizing whole human body vibration in accordance with ISO 2631-1 and ISO 8041. The DC response of the silicon MEMS sensors is the key to yielding accurate velocity and displacement results from the raw acceleration data.

Featured Application
Telescope Relies on GC Series Heavy-Duty Gage Head

article image
MEAS GC-485 Gage Head with RS-485 I/O accurately closes the loop in a new system that controls the movements of the segments which focus the antenna of the Large Millimeter Telescope (LMT). Located in Chalchicomula de Sesma, Mexico, the LMT is the world's largest and most sensitive single-aperture telescope for radio waves in the 0.85 to 4mm wavelength range. Other versions of this sensor are the GCA, the high temperature version (AC LVDT), and GCD (DC), GCD-SE (DC single-ended), and GCT (4-20mA), which have built-in signal conditioning and are CE certified.

Featured Application
Intra Uterine Pressure Sensing and Child Birth

article image
The 1630 disposable pressure sensor is being used by a medical OEM for intra uterine pressure sensing. Its long and narrow footprint makes it easy for insertion into the uterus to measure the contraction frequency/amplitudes prior to child birth. This sensor is gel coated to prevent direct contact with amniotic fluids and meets AAMI requirements to ensure compatibility with existing monitors. The medical OEM completed the application with their own tubing and connector.
